Back in 2011 a friend of mine called me and told me to grab my iMac and join him in a dark room in his basement. I thought he sounded a bit crazy, but decided to go with it anyway. And so, we founded Evermade.

From Designer to Frontend dev, Planner, Project Manager, Sales & Marketing Director, Account Director, COO & CEO – I’ve held many titles in the past years. But all I really care about is that everyone in our team enjoy their work and are motivated to do their absolute best for our clients.

If you’re interested in working with us you can always drop me a line or give me a call.

Hi there!

My name is Jenni and I work as an Account Manager at Evermade, which basically means that my job is to keep my team busy and clients happy. It’s a very inspiring position to be in, since I get to be part of projects that actually make a difference. While my production team does all the ‘dirty work’ when developing and designing the actual services, I am the one responsible for the projects and accounts in general.

My favourite quote is from the former Finnish President Mauno Koivisto, which freely translated goes “Unless we know with certainty what will happen, let’s assume everything is going well.” I try to keep these wise words in mind when dealing with projects.

I love traveling, food and sports. When I am not busy with work, you may find me at the gym or running the Helsinki seaside. Nothing makes me happier than a long run on a sunny day.

Want to work with us?

Yo!

I’m Miikka, an Account Manager here at Evermade. My job includes handling clients and projects, which is a strange combination of being an easily excited visionary and a process-oriented manager. I like both. I’m weird like that.

I’m currently particularly interested in data-driven user experience management and user centered design, and digital strategy that includes automation, top-notch UX and measurable ROIs.

In my free time I put on my robe and my wizard hat, throw dice around, make strange declarations like “Make a Dexterity Saving throw” and speak in funny voices. Because that’s what playing D&D is all about. I also play a bunch of video games, root for ENCE, talk too much about my dog and deadlift as often as possible.

Feel free to add me on LinkedIn! I’m always looking to get to know more interesting people. My Twitter is very unprofessional. You have been warned.

Hejssan!

My name is Joakim and I work as a Project Manager here at Evermade. It´s a bit like being a chef/waiter/dishwasher in a creative kitchen. You have pots and pans with mysterious ingredients brewing here and there. Sometimes the sauce boils over and sometimes the curtains catch fire but the end result is always delicious!

In my spare time I act as a peace negotiator between my three very active kids. And if I find the time I like to be outdoors. Any adventure will do, be it hiking, windsurfing, skiing, riding my motorcycle or just lounging at the summer cottage. Oh, and I recently climbed a mountain (like a real one, with snow on top). Bucket list, check!

I was founding Evermade back in 2011. I started as a developer. I’m still on that track leading our dev team and getting my hands dirty with projects.

I’m primarily a technical dude but during my career I’ve been also doing sales, managing projects, running opportunistic startup(s), being CEO, cleaning our office toilets, creating videos and working as a graphic designer. And written a book. I enjoy in stepping out of my comfort zone and seeing if I can float.

I like sports in general – like kayakingrunning & swimming – but I’m especially known as an active cyclist (some could call it obsession) and cycling blogger/youtuber. In addition to that I’m spending time with my family and enjoying nature in all of it’s forms.

I started as a Flash designer/animator until Mr. Steve said Flash is not the future. I moved on and now I’m a designer/developer hybrid who likes to do some teaching.

My big dream was to start a company and so one day I decided to move my computer to my mom’s basement and thats how Evermade got started. Nowadays I try to push the quality of our end products higher. I want to be able to achieve projects goals while keeping the world class visual and technical quality.

Every winter I take a long vacation to go backcountry snowboarding with my friends. I also like to document the company & snowboarding with photography.

Cheers,

I consider myself a problem solver. During my 15+ years of experience I learned that (Like Muhammad Ali once said) “impossible is nothing.” There is always a solution, a path and better opportunities where things are not clear or easy.

I’m using that philosophy with my clients, never afraid of getting my hands dirty to find the best solution and give them the best we can offer.

Who, me? Ok, here we go!

I’m a web developer hailing from Vantaa, built my first website in elementary school and I’ve been doing it professionally since 2008.

When not creating websites, I’m burning excess energy by banging on drums or cycling, except when I’m refuelling at the buffet. During the cold, dark Finnish winter you might also find me completely immersed in a video game, trying to escape the harsh reality that’s looming outside the window. And I’m not very good at doing things casually, I’m either fully committed to what I’m doing or not very interested in it at all. It’s just like someone forgot to install gears 2-4 when I was put together..

Oh yeah, my drumming videos can be enjoyed on Youtube and some drumming & cycling related snapshots of my life on my Instagram-page.

I am a restless creative mind and I get excited really easily. I laugh a lot and loud — even during client meetings and workshops. I like workshopping with clients.

When diving into new project I want to wrap my head around the whole thing and understand the client. I want to really solve problems and not just do some sugar coated layouts.

Within all this web stuff I also have experience in illustrating, all the print stuff and creating visual identities for companies and events.

I try to get off-line as much as possible. The best ideas are more likely to hit me while reading a book instead of surfing through those so-called inspirational sites. In my off-line life I also enjoy graffiti, Finnish archipelago and spending my money dining in restaurants.

I used to work in the field of web analytics and digital marketing before following my true passion to become a full-time coder.  I get my kicks from solving interesting problems and working with both frontend and backend.

I have endless curiosity about how things work – when I see something cool I ask myself how was that made and how could I build something like that. That’s what got me into programming in the first place.

In my free time, I’m a board game geek and an occasional singer in a band.

I’m a web designer/developer hybrid that’s had a passion for creating websites for well over 10 years. In school my favorite subjects were math and arts. Luckily, some vice president came up with the internet and I got to combine them in a hobby, which then became my profession.

My main motivations are to always push myself, and help my clients create something that makes them proud and adds value to their business.

Other than making websites, I kill time by playing games and making music. Is cycling a pastime or a method of transportation? Maybe both.

I used to be a designer, but then I took an arrow to the knee was sat down in front of Sublime Text and was told to make code happen. Since then, I’ve spent the last half a decade at Evermade working at various roles and projects, having finally more or less settled on the beautiful marriage of data & code: analytics and statistics bundled up with full-stack development.

I love conducting experiments and trying out new things, especially if those new things bend my mind a bit. I’m transparent and open, I challenge the defaults, and I ask the question “why?” a lot. I strongly believe that shared understanding is critically important for successful collaboration, and that openness and insistence on clear communication are a great way to get there.

Things I enjoy outside of my professional life include (but are not limited to) good coffee, video games and nature (especially when hiking there).

I mainly design websites, but can handle almost everything. I have some front-end development experience, so I also understand websites. I think that it’s just not about how websites look like, but the whole experience and function.

I have been cruising around Western Finland. Born in Käläviä and moved to Tornio to study fine arts. After graduated from the fine arts program I moved to Turku. After 3 -years in Turku, I moved to Helsinki. And here I am.

I spend my spare time in the woods, either with my dog or my bike. Every once in awhile I go climbing out/indoors. I also have to admit that I’m a Jokerit fan. See you in the games 😉

My name is Roosa and I work as a marketer here at Evermade. My job is to create content for our channels, communicate Evermade’s awesomeness to the public and help our designers, developers & web analysts with content and copy.

I spent most of my life in Belgium but moved back to my homeland to study at the University of Helsinki. Currently, I’m a student in the master’s programme of Politics, Media and Communication and about to start my thesis. Wish me luck! 

I’m inspired by insightful marketing content, visually beautiful digital services, super-smooth user experiences and those who dare to step out of their comfort zone create something unique. On a regular workday, my mind is like a browser with 20 tabs open; I’m always thinking of the next thing. I can get very focused on getting small details just right, but I also try my best to see the bigger picture.

Some things I enjoy outside of work include laughing at silly things with my friends, great coffee and escaping the Finnish winter to places where the sun shines bright.

Hei! I was born in France at the foot of Mont Blanc, where excellent cheeses, bread, and wine are from. I first moved to Finland in 2003, then decided to head back home to France with my wife. But seems like I really fell in love with the land of a thousand lakes — I’ve now lived here for more than 8 years.

I think at the heart of every great design is a comprehensive understanding of the customer’s business. My aim is to design high quality, user-friendly websites that help clients reach their business goals. I have over nine years of experience in the digital industry from small to big companies. However, I don’t focus on websites all the time, I also create brand identities and print.

When offline, I enjoy boosting my creativity and getting inspired by visiting art museums and galleries, reading some inspirational & architecture literature and hiking in nature. Finland has fantastic landscapes! I also enjoy are traveling with my precious family and all sports in general like skiing, snowboarding, and football. Lastly, I love to chill out in the sauna.

I usually work as a generalist full-stack developer, however my real passion is in creating breathtaking but intuitive and practical frontend/UX. In projects I’m keen to participate and get acquainted with the concept phase to understand clients and their needs better.

Prior to joining Evermade I was an entrepreneur and lead developer in a digital advertising agency. I also have worked in eSports industry as a project manager and chairperson of Finnish eSports Federation.

Hi! My name is Iina and I work as an Office Manager at Evermade.

As a Bachelor of Hospitality Management my role in the company is to pamper our customers, spoil my fellow colleagues and make sure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes. I’ve taken it upon myself to keep everyone in the team high in caffeine energetic and facilitate their work by helping them with anything they might need.

I used to work in the restaurant industry, so I am passionate about great food paired with good wines. As an ex-barista I also think that life’s too short to drink bad coffee.

I’m fascinated by martial arts and alpine skiing and on my spare time you can find me practicing capoeira, hitting the slopes, bouldering or outdoors – any kind of sport will do. I also love a good read and enjoy watching series.

See you on the slopes!

Back in the 80’s, I used to wear baseball hats even when it wasn’t sunny or wear them backwards when it actually was sunny. Also, I wore big pants, skateboarded, listened to rap music and occasionally made graffiti art.

It wasn’t the easiest way of being back then, but now I feel I should thank all the stuck-up people for not understanding, and all the cops and guards who chased me down the streets. Because that just encouraged me to keep looking for new things that had that flare others were confused about or afraid of.

Now years later I’m working at Evermade, still looking for the next wave.

As I was a designer in the student association and passionate about creating beautiful things, I decided to change my current major and I made a career transition into graphic design. Since then, I have been moving forward and constantly finding fresh challenges.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing sports, drawing, traveling and spending time with my family, friends and pets.

Web Analytics Specialist

Vilma Järvinen

Web Analytics Specialist

Vilma Järvinen

I work as an analytics specialist at Evermade. My main focus is on web analytics and in search engine optimization work. With analytics and search engine optimization, my aim is to grow businesses through better communication and develop decision-making processes.

What describes me the most is that I like to have clear goals and targets for projects and continuous work. This I practice in all the areas I work with. One of the key factors is that our client’s goals are always our goals.

Why do I think analytics is important? There are a lot more to offer than just pageviews, sessions and bounce rate figures – with setting proper measurement for your site, it can bring you valuable information about your customer engagement, e-commerce and basically just what works and what doesn’t. Taking web analytics as a part of your marketing and sales work, you will be in constant connection with your clients and on top of your game. Knowledge is power!

Analytics is just one part of a website’s development work. Optimizing your site for users and search engines is crucial for your sites visibility, ranking, and general work experience. What this basically means is taking care of your site’s technical elements that influence search engine crawling and optimizing your content for the users (and okay, for the bots as well). I think the benefit of doing proper SEO work is quite simple – wouldn’t any business rather want to have as much free traffic as possible than use a lot of money for advertising to receive visitors?

I have worked with a number of companies, primarily in eCommerce, B2B, FMCG and the publishing industry.

I am familiar especially with these tools and specialties:

Google Analytics
Google Ads
Google Data Studio
Screaming Frog
Moz
AWR Cloud
Content optimization
Technical SEO

I make data understandable for different businesses and help them find the most relevant information for their business.

I’m an enthusiastic creative designer with wide interests in all things digital; apps, websites, computer graphics – you name it. What really strives me to do my best is seeing slick graphics and polished designs come to life as real sites and services.

In my work I aim for clarity and simplicity; bringing order to chaos. Above all, I appreciate things that make sense to the user. My background is in Industrial Design and New Media studies which have been the cornerstones for my career in design.

At Evermade, I find myself engaged in projects all the way from first client interactions to creating concepts, final layouts and working together with developers. I consider myself a design generalist ‘a jack of all trades’ and often times I end up finding myself at the deep end tweaking front-end code of the sites to make sure that every pixel sits perfectly.

On my spare time I like to read non-fiction books and rock the electric guitar.

Hey! I’m Oliver ‘Olli’ Granlund and I’m a developer here at Evermade.

I used to work with different CMS:es but after landing my first real dev-job at an Ad Agency I haven’t really used any other CMS than WordPress. In my daily work, I focus on creating polished products with a solid foundation. Making things work and look pretty brings joy to me.

I have a tendency to challenge myself with different things, both by the computer and away from it. Here are a few hobbies that stuck on with me over the years:
Photography ( also doing freelancing )
Videography
Building mechanical keyboards
Brewing beer

For sports, I like biking with my road bike and my fixie, occasionally hit the gym, snowboarding in the winter and also crush my co-workers in badminton.

Hi there!

I came here to work as a Web Analyst, but from day one I’ve been keeping my hands full with everything related to modern marketing. My expertise is in marketing technologies and how to maximize their potential to grow your business. If you think of a slick salesman and a nerdy expert, I’m something from between.

Thrill-seeking is my thing. Although I like nice and warm summer days, I find my inner peace when shredding fresh powder turns on big mountains. I also like techno. See you front left!
